Hello and !! My name is Angela and I have been on this site since June 2012. Congratulations on taking your first steps to a brand new you and a new weight loss experience where you are supported by en entire community of like-minded people. This website is dedicated to helping people who want a healthier lifestyle including issues with eating healthy and exercising, as well as support forums where we talk about specific issues.
I recommend reading through the Getting Started Guide at this link: www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/get_star ted.asp
Join one of the teams to get extra support. there is one for every week of new members, so you can search for your team by going to the SparkTeam page and look under "Classes", I think it says. There will be a bunch of people that joined the same week as you. OR you can go to one of the teams for how much weight you want to lose. The team possibilities are endless, they are cheerleaders, and they will provide the dialogue you need to make this happen. I promise... use the teams. They do help!
So welcome and enjoy! If you have questions, you can always reach out and send me a SparkMail, or stop by my SparkPage at the link below. We can do this together, with encouragement and support from others, and SparkPeople has really great resources for any kind of workout or condition!
